Larry Cherubino Pedestal Margaret River Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2021

This sophisticated and distinctively cool climate wine has
flinty notes of asparagus and sage, zesty, vibrant and
layered.
Producer Note
Former ‘Winery of the Year’ by James Halliday and Matt Skinner, Larry Cherubino wants
his wines to be distinctive and to speak clearly of their variety and vineyard site. He
believes in paying meticulous attention to the vineyard, canopy and water
management, picking at the right time and minimal intervention in the winery. Larry
also makes wine under the Laissez Faire label, an exquisite range of natural wines
which are the ultimate expression of site, made in small batches from hand harvested
grapes. From delicate whites to opulent reds, all his wines have pure class and finesse.
Vineyard
The Pedestal range is so named after the elevation of the Margaret River vineyard. The
vines are grown at the highest point of the Wilyabrup Valley, which is influenced by the
cooling ocean breeze. The soils in the northern part of Margaret River are iron-rich
laterite loams with high gravel content, which drain freely and warm up quickly in the
spring. Due the south facing slopes, the vineyard does not see the afternoon heat and
therefore it takes longer for the fruit to develop, concentrating the varietal
characteristics and flavours.
Winemaking
The Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc parcels were picked at maximum flavour maturity
over several weeks, to ensure that all the various soil types and aspects of the vineyard
were fully exploited. A combination of machine and hand harvesting was employed.
Only the free run parcels were used after a gentle pressing. Fermentation took place at
11 to 13°C, with 60% of the juice being fermented in two year old oak, for two months
before final blending.
Tasting Note
A fragrant lavender aroma coupled with leafy, herbal spiciness from the oak. Straw
and cut-grass from the Sauvignon Blanc balance this wine beautifully with gently
tropical fruits providing enough acidity to cleanse and draw out the finish. The palate is
soft and plush, with long acidity and a strong finish.
